BioHazard has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am using XML::Simple on my Windows machine and it works quite well. There is just one thing I do not understand: XML::Simple does not seem to cope with ü, ä and ö. I need these characters in german language - HTML(!)-Output. I have taken a closer look to the Simple.pm and have searched for an escape method for ", & etc. I have found it but only for XMLout(). I could change at least that method to deal with ö, ä and ü for XML-Output but the more important thing is this XMLin()-Thing. It does read an ä from the XML-File for example but not & auml ; <- But that is exactly what I need for the HTML-Output. Is there a way to escape these values without making changes in the whole hash-reference tree produced by XMLin()?
Thank you for your help
P.S.: I have to apologize for my english...
